Default Want to add bags

Hi all. I have a 2018 Custom 1200. Had the Turn Signal Relocate kit put on by Dealer under 60 Days for Warranty. Now I am starting to look for a set of Bags. Harley has some nice ones. The hard ones used on the 1200T. And the set of Leather bags with the Sportster logo on them. The 1200T bags look easier to install. But are Pricey.
Has anyone installed the Docking Hardware? Reading the paperwork, Its talking about Lowering the Swingarm. Something I have Never done before. My thoughts are to put the bike in a Wheel Chock. Use my Motorcycle scissor Jack to raise the rear. Remove the Lower Shock Bolts and Nuts. And raise the Jack just enough to get the Hardware in. And lower the Jack to get the Shocks reattached. Hopefully not running into a Problem.
Thanks for any Input

Sounds like a good plan.

Thank you. Most likely I will be installing Solo. Thought I would ask first. Before I ran into a problem.
As far as the Bags, I want ones that will attach to the bike. Had a set of Will Max Black Jack on a Street 750. Until one of the Tabs attached to the bottom the bag ripped off. 75 MPH on a curvy road.

Bolting the bags to your bike should not be difficult to do, and there are mount system available commercially.

I made my own mounts for my 98S model.
These dims won't work for yours but the concept is the same.
I used the Easy Bracket locking detachable mount system.

Thanks. I'm not into the beads. I like the Sportster Leather bags.
